Abberley Foundation Front Hall Chandelier Project.

Abberley Hall Foundation project to illuminate the Front Hall with bespoke lighting.

Installation of Chandeliers in the Front Hall
After many years of gloom in the Front Hall, the Abberley Hall Foundation has been able to shed light that makes every inch of the gloriously decorated Front Hall gleam. The Gough Foundation have been generous enough to fund this project and the listed interior can now be seen in its true glory after a bespoke project to provide specially designed and created lighting to illuminate the Front Hall. The lighting project started from hand drawn sketches through to artisan construction of carefully sourced components and finally the most delicate installation to make sure that nothing in the listed interior was damaged. The three magnificent chandeliers, each with 14 glowing bulbs, are now hanging in sequence in the Front Hall, and the full effect must be seen with the fire burning bright in the hearth of the Front Hall. The Front Hall has truly been transformed and will now provide a bright and warm welcome for all visitors, parents and children.
